Dear Friends of ACC-US & ACC,
This year marks ACC’s 25th year as a community-based conservation organization and we are proud of our many successes conserving biodiversity in East Africa through the collaborative application of scientific and indigenous knowledge, improved livelihoods and good governance through development of local institutions. It’s been a remarkably productive year so far with new programs, a new website, a new strategic plan and new funding!
ACC-US, formally known as African Conservation Fund, was set up in 2014 to support ACC and other community-based programs in east Africa including the South Rift Association of Landowners, Lale’enok Resource Centre, Cheli & Peacock Community Trust, Uaso Ngiro Baboon Project and Rebuilding the Pride. This year we launched a new website, led our annual safari to Tanzania, and with the support of foundations and donors helped ACC and friends to raise more than $400,000 for community-based wildlife conservation programs.
ACC and ACC-US are grateful to all our supporters. Thank you!
Lucy Waruingi — Executive Director, ACC
Carolyn Greene — Executive Director, ACC-US
